Simple room with a single bed, window, desk, shelf, and area to store clothes. It's a step up from camping or dorm, and quite affordable, less than mile from UH Hilo, ocean park, and town. Access to outdoor living area, fridge, hot tub and laundry. We are a motley crew of four sharing a kitchen area and bath. The house is funky but fun. The common areas are not always the cleanest, but your room would be. It's on the lower level of an old plantation house with tin shower, fruit trees and yard.

The space

Centrally located, less than a mile to shore, farmer's market, Hilo town and the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Our outdoor living area isn't screened, so it's like you are in a park in the middle of town. Room is good for only one person. The kitchenette and bath are dormitory style and shared with 3-4 others/

Minimally. Although long term tenants are very friendly and helpful and have been known to really show guests around.

Sidewalks, tennis courts, ocean view park near by.

Taxi, neighbor rents cars, we have bikes to loan.

This is a no smoking property and their is a child on the property.

Guest access

Interaction with guests

It varies depending on who is home and also staying there. Sometimes guests are shown around and find a great community.

Other things to note

Shared kichen and bath area. One of the housemates may have a car available for you to rent. Nice perk.

Kamala's place is an excellent option for a budget traveller. It is cozy, intimate and very affordable. I stayed at her place for 1 month and had nothing but the best experiences. I shared the house with 4 other guests who were friendly and helpful. As advertised, the place is a type of community style living where the bathroon, kitchen and patio are shared with other guests. If you're looking for a 5 star experience, then this isnt the place for you but if you want a comfortable, cozy and affordable place where you can meet other friendly and diverse houseguests, then Kamala's place would be perfect. Kamala herself is a wonderful host who will do her best to accomodate your needs and help in any way she can. When I told her that I was leaving two days earlier than planned, she even offered to give me a refund for those two extra days! I would defintely recommed her place to anyone else and hope that I can visit again sometime in the future!
